How To Enable Auto Recovery In Internet Explorer 9

All the modern browsers including Firefox and Google Chrome include auto recovery functions. If the browser crashes, the tabs that were opened before crashing can be opened again automatically. It can be recovered automatically or by asking the user if he or she wants to recover the previous session. This can be configured in the browser preferences.

Internet Explorer 9 always asks if the user wants to recover the previous session upon starting the browser again or not. This can be frustrating who use Internet Explorer as their default browser. I will tell you how you can get Internet Explorer 9 to automatically recover the previous session without asking the user.

You need to work with the registry in order to enable auto recovery in Internet Explorer 9. I recommend you backup registry before trying this trick. Let’s start.

  1. Go to Run –> regedit
    This will open the Registry Editor.
    Run regedit
  2. Go to the following key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Recovery
    Internet Explorer 9 Auto Recovery
  3. In the right hand pane, you will fine the key named AutoRecover. Double click it and make sure its value is 1.
  4. If you can’t find the key, you can make a new DWORD value and name it AutoRecover. Make its value as 1.

This will enable the auto recovery function in Internet Explorer 9.
